the dolphin massacre in japan

I urge you to take a couple of minutes to visit Christina’s blog and watch a video about the senseless and cruel slaughtering of dolphins in Japan narrated by Joaquin Phoenix. (Please make sure your small children are not around when you watch it. It is gruesome and was very difficult to watch. I ended up in tears.) After you watch the video, please take 5 seconds to sign the online petition (below the video or here) to the Prime Minister of Japan urging him to stop the killings.

Please pass this along. Perhaps our combined effort can make a difference in the lives of these poor creatures.

BSM (aka Best Shot Monday) 3/5/07

Is it already Monday again? Time for another round of “BSM.”

Here’s Julian at 3 months, 1 week old. I realized most of my BSM’s are of Julian because he can’t run away from me yet. ;)

Julian 3 months, 1 week - 3/2/07

Visit Tracey over at Picture This to see everyone else’s best shots.

In case you are wondering, Julian did very well without me on Sunday. I nursed him right before I left for the photoshoot. He was sleeping when I got home and slept another 45 minutes or so before he woke up ready to eat. Jody didn’t have to bother with a bottle, which is good because I don’t think he would’ve taken it. We’re still going to try to get him used to one though so that I can schedule more photoshoots without having to time everything just perfectly. I lucked out that this one was less than five minutes from my house so I could’ve got home quickly if the need arose.

Also “Monkeysmama” from Maya’s Mom found out that one of the women in the Maya’s Mom office runs the company that makes the “Breastbottle Nurser.” She gave her a free one to send to me so she had it overnighted here. That was so nice of them! Thank you again, Monkeysmama. ;)

Oh, and the photoshoot went well. I came away from it with several images that I really like.
